We started to notice a strange smell coming from our living room radiator about 2 months ago. We thought it was the radiator and bled it but the smell persisted. It was a strange, did one of the kids poop, kind of smell that you noticed only when entering the room. After about a month or more we stopped noticing the smell. (We thought it could be a dead animal, but where? the radiators are not covered.) Then yesterday we noticed the smell in the living room again and this time a much stronger smell in the basement. It seems to be coming from the furnace, which is under the living room, but then again maybe not. The furnace is directly underneath a gas fireplace too. We think the odor smells like a mix of gas and poop and maybe some rotten eggs, but the smell is not strong enough that if you're in the room for longer than 20 seconds you continue to smell it.

We're on the east coast and have had freezing termperatures for the last few days. No rain. No sign of any dead animals.

Any idea what might be causing this smell?
